Here's an email from Manang Thelma (Dr. Thelma O. La Rosa-Fernandez) after they attended the funeral of Tia Rose Medina in Surigao.
Just arrived this afternoon from Surigao to attend the burial of
Tia Rose. While there we had the pleasant opportunity to reminisce with
the third generation and the Davao contingent(I am sending you a
picture and would give a prize to the first one who can give the names of the
people in the picture, Camila not included) about the direct descendants of the
Santiago Osorio clan, that means our parents. And the subject again of the
reunion came up. As we were the last to leave this afternoon, we've set
the date tentatively on May 1, 2015 in Dalaguete. Venue and the schedule
of the activities to be planned by the Cebu group. We are making this early announcement
so we can spread the word about the reunion and everybody can make their plans
for the coming year. We would like to hear from everybody sa halangdong
banay ni Santiago. Please write your inputs, do we form a group or
whatever, (Edwin, your the techie, can we use the website you've made?) ug
unsaon na. Ako I am just giving the initial information because I
am the eldest female apo nga based here in Dalaguete. Manong Boy Amazona
is actually the eldest living apo.
Please spread the word as we should all keep in touch.

Salamat Nong Edwin, for the FYI.
am going home to Cebu for good this coming April. Not sure where I shall be
again by May 2015 but I'll keep the reunion in mind.
I register again the fact that my
brothers and I are not placed in the "family tree". One can only see the
children of Loreto Cornelio with Vicenta Papas. We are his children with Aurora
Amythest Gemma P. Osorio
Cornelio P. Osorio
Joshua P. Osorio
is good to be included in the communications and I do look forward to getting
acquainted with cousins and all. I hope there is no problem with putting my
mother's and our names in the family tree.

Hi Tio Edwin
I have created a page on FB called 'Santiago Osorio Clan Reunion' today as
the base camp for input, suggestions, etc.. This will save you time
updating the SantiagoOsorioClan website.
I still have to 'decorate' the page with relevant photos but that can
wait. I'll send invites to my siblings, cousins and aunties that I know
personally. I'm sure the six degrees of separation will take effect and
by that time, we would have already advise everyone in our bloodline.
And also, may I suggest the following:
1. Color coded t-shirts to be worn during the reunion (e.g Lola Netta's
descendants to wear like pink)..
2. Allain (Kuya's son) has a t-shirt printing business so we can order
from him, provided we give him enough time
3. Badges...... I'm a member of the Toastmasters Club at our workplace
and as such, I wear a Toastmasters membership badge..
Speaking with pride, what about if each of us who attend the reunion (and
those who couldn't), got given a Santiago Osorio Clan membership badge? If
we order many, maybe we can get a discount. Each person will have to pay
for his/her own badge of course.
The badge design to say something like "Member of Santiago Osorio Clan and
proud of it". Afterall, we are all proud of our heritage, aren't we?
Anyway, that's my 2 cents' worth.
